6 Signs You Need a New Mattress

People don't really think about it too often, but having a great mattress is crucial for your heath. You spend about one third of your time in your bed sleeping and after a while, it can ware out and you have to replace it. There are other reasons besides the age of your mattress of why you may need to replace it. Take a look at these reasons and if any of these apply to you, it's time to look at getting a new one.

1. Your mattress is old
The normal wear and tear of your mattress can really affect your sleeping without you even realizing it. If your mattress is 8-10 years old, it is time to look at getting a new one. You should also replace your pillows every 2 years as they can cause issues with your health too.

2. You are in pain
If you wake up with aches, numbness, back pain or neck pain this is a crucial signal that you need a new mattress. That old mattress is costing you a good night sleep and  can affect other areas of your health and life.  Even if you don't feel the pain and just wake up feeling  tired and groggy, but you slept 8 or more hours, you probably actually were tossing and turning not getting a full night's sleep. which leads us to our next reason.

3. You toss and turn
If you frequently wake up during the middle of the night and you cannot get comfortable because you toss and turn, it's time to replace it. If you sleep with a partner, you could be also disrupting their sleep making them suffer as well.

4. You have a dent in your bed
If you see any visual signs or can feel signs of lumps and bumps in your mattress, this is a sign that you need a new one. Coils and foam can wear out over time and you lose out on the right support that you need for your spine and the rest of your body.

5. You sleep somewhere else
If you end up sleeping somewhere else like your guest bed , couch, or on the ground while camping can be indications that you need an new mattress. Most people notice this when they travel to visit families and either sleep in a hotel or a guest bed and find that they get better sleep or it feels super comfy.

6. You suffer from asthma or your allergies are acting up
Your mattress can actually attract collect dust, dust mites, pet dander, and more. These allergens can trigger you to sneeze, cough, have a runny nose, scratchy throat, or have itchy or watery eyes that can last weeks. Your mattress can attract and have allergens such as pollen, mold, food, rodents, and more that can trigger asthma symptoms.
